The Australian wildfires that have been burning in the country since September of last year have caused immeasurable devastation to the people and animals in Australia.

Bindi Irwin, Steve Irwin's daughter, has been working with the Wildlife Hospital founded by her father to help provide relief to the animals affected.

"Thank you for being a Wildlife Warrior, Seth!"

It's likely that the name of the ward comes from Seth's mother's name, Ann Perry.

What a great gesture from a great guy!
